Available for S FT 7 mm in polyurethane only. Self-set or split inrralox retainer type rings are recommended in these cases. Flighted belts always need an indent of at least 1. Intralox President Edel Blanks on Using a full width sprocket or drum motor is ideal for both performance and sanitation.

Sprockets available in Blue Acetal. Elongation strain mqnual load All belts will elongate if load is applied. RMI is a strong supporter of Intralox belts.

The resistance of ThermoDrive belting to the following chemicals can be enhanced by reducing product temperature, chemical concentration, and the length of exposure to the chemicals.

The Intralox Engineering Program calculates the temperature factor automatically, based on the operating temperature of the application. There are two important considerations: However, minimum recommended roller diameters are achieved only by using Intralox designed rollers. In all cases, a minimum of three drive bars must be seated on the sprocket after the position limiters have been installed.

For the majority of applications, a solid UHMW or Acetron scraper will perform well to scrape the surface of the belt if the above guidelines are followed. Stainless Steel feeler gauges are recommended to verify this dimension. The temperature factor curves show the effect of temperature on belt strength, and these graphs can be used in calculating the conveyor belt analysis by hand.

Generally, as the operating temperature increases, the belt will weaken in strength, but become tougher and more impact resistant. Our belting services are built to last and used for many different applications including: However, when smaller diameter rollers are necessary, creating belt drag in the returnway area immediately before idle-end rollers will aid the belt in accurately conforming to these smaller roller diameters.

If the conveyor is bidirectional, there must be two position limiters used, one for each direction, bypassing both of the existing load-bearing rollers. The percentage of area in the plane of a plastic belt that is unobstructed by plastic. Further adjustment is not required. In every case, ensure that the belt path is completely free from obstructions such as cross members, bolts, wiring, etc.

Typical Components Technical Information and Application The recommendations provided in this document have proven successful for most installations; however, extreme or unique conveyor designs should be reviewed by an Intralox representative. For inherently sticky products e. A belt which contracts due to cold temperatures may cause overtensioning and excessive shaft loads if surplus belt is not provided.

Gundlach also served on the National River Academy Board of Directors for several years and as its Chairman for two years. The loose fit will allow the belt to be simply lifted and cleaned in place or, depending upon the conveyor design, easily removed from the conveyor so that the conveyor engindering be easily cleaned.

The amount of tension initially imposed on the conventional conveyor belt, creating a tight wrap on the drive pulley so that drive power can be effectively transmitted from the drive pulley to the conveyor belting during ramping and running without the occurrence of belt slippage. Conveyor Exit Outfeed of Center Drives: A belt surface that does not have seams, holes, etc. New London Engineering Conveyor Replacement Parts are available for all New London conveyors from hinged steel belts and sprockets, to gearmotors and reducers, to chains, sprockets and bearings, to cleated conveyor belts, etc.


Intralox belts set the standard for performance and reliability across a wide variety of applications and industries. Please obtain more information on spare parts, servicing, maintenance, Repair, repair or accessories directly from the registered companies. Position Limiters 19 Position Limiters Position limiters are necessary to ensure proper, continuous engagement between Intralox ThermoDrive belting and drive sprockets without the use of pre-tension.

Martin de Tours Award from St. In order to ensure that the flights do not impact these limiters, the lateral movement of the belt should be sufficiently contained with 0.

ThermoDrive® Technical Manual

Intralox belts are made of plastic modules. This arrangement is also good for heavily loaded applications. Contact Customer service for a form to fill in specifying shaft dimensions. The framework configuration should allow for appropriate sanitation and maintenance as required in the specific application.

The limiters need to be rigidly mounted to resist any tendency the belt may have to lift off of the sprockets. If this calculation is not done properly, the length of the ThermoDrive belt may be significantly wrong. The solution for this situation could be different roller spacing, a short set of rails, or even shoes.

Operating in Conveyor since the early ’80s, Regina significantly contributed to the technological innovation of the sector, always providing a reliable product manufactured with the most performing materials available. Be cautious to account for gaps between wearstrips when changes in length occur from thermal expansion.

Ensure zero pre-tension in the emgineering. ThermoDrive Splicing System includes: For use on flighted belts.
